Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies Showcase

Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies Showcase

About The Event

Date: February 20, 2020 @ 9.30am–12pm

Venue: Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

Organizer: ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

There is no doubt that recent events confirm the importance of the Middle East and Muslim worlds.  Although the media and policymakers devote considerable attention to them, they are often mis- or partially understood.  ‘Arab and Islamic Studies’ seeks to rectify this by presenting a comprehensive view that links the Arab countries to Iran, Turkey, Central Asia and often parts of the Muslim world beyond.  The approach is naturally interdisciplinary, drawing on the insights of history, political science and international relations, anthropology, literary criticism, and linguistics to make sense of the culture, societies and politics of the region.  Language training is a particularly important foundation upon which to pursue these studies.

The overall aim is to present integrated and mutually reinforcing insights while dispersing the facile explanations and stereotypes that have been all too common.

Relevant audiences are International students, Undergraduate students, and Postgraduate coursework students.
